Enjoy Malaga centre, you are in the heart of the city with great history and culture. Just imagine that a century ago Federico Garcia Lorca was performing at the very same Plaza de Constitución where Chinitas coffee grounds were located. Marques de Larios street is the greatest shopping street in Malaga, and it offers a variety of boutiques and cafés, with mix of tradition and modernity.
Staying in the heart of a city with history where the great masters of the past left their marks is a true privilege.
There is a plethora of drinking and dining establishments all around, and Calle Larios, one of the main shopping Streets, is always beautifully decorated and lit at night. A beautiful walk through Tropical park called Paseo del Parque, leads to the beach.. Malagueta beach is about 15 minutes walk away from the Cathedral.
All the most popular big Spanish/European stores are on Marques Larios, as well as some smaller boutiques and coffee shops. We highly recommend this as a stop for anyone looking to shop, or anyone looking for a nice walk where you can see the locals out and about.
The Plaza de la Constitución – Constitution Square and Calle Larios, the city’s main street which ends in the square are both pedestrian precincts, and this is a recommended spot for starting your walk through the Historic Quarter of Málaga.
On one side, so as not to hinder the celebration of the many events held here, is the Fuente de Génova. Casetas (marquees) of the Feria de Málaga, the tribune of the authorities at Easter are some of the big events still hosted in Málaga’s central square.
In the middle of the historic centre, you will find the main museums of Malaga for your enjoyment. Carmen Thyssen Museum is an emblem of the city. Among the 230 works of the permanent collection are those of world famous masters such as Ezquerra or Zumbaran, Sorrolla and Julio Romero de Torres. Temporary collections are also of great interest.
